Notes/Commercial Description:
Ancient traditions dictate this Belgian style Dubbel was brewed with a long kettle boil, pitching a blend of yeast strains and bottle conditioning encouraged with Belgian Candi Sugar. Dan’s insistence on old world methodology creates the complexity of the Strong Ale you hold 18°P. Sipping will reveal a cordial of caramel and spiced fruit notes. This makes it perfect to lie down in your cellar or enjoy by the fire tonight.

From a bottle, pours a murky dark brown and amber color with a wispy white head.

The smell is just a bit of dark fruit, lots of candied sugar, yeast and good spice characteristics. This smells like it will be delicious. The flavors are fruitier than the nose lets on, some figs and raisins, but they have a distinct spice to them, holiday-like. The yeast and caramel malt backbone pull it all together. It is moderately sweet, but the bitterness from some hops keeps it balanced.

I really like this, great example of the style and very traditional.
